LA beer and world BBQ--The Fyre festival of BBQ

Combine two wildly popular foods, one tiny plaza, over 3500 tickets…and only 8 (!) vendors and 2(!) bars…and you get the fyre festival of bbq

reading the comments reminds me of the level of disaster the first 626 night market back over on chowhound.

I always prefer a restaurant to a food event and a pub or brewery to a beer event. Always.

Thanks for sharing, @hppzz! Truly bad.
